Carrie Pemberton Ford is the Director of the CCARHT, an internationally recognized research network on Human Trafficking which draws on academics from Universities, Research Institutes and other networks, stakeholders, government, enforcement personnel, lawyers, international development practitioners, policy makers, businesses and third sector organizations drawn from across the world. This Centre has been responsible for a number of high level reports on risks, capacities and gaps in provision of initiatives undertaken by DG sponsored projects.
Dr Pemberton Ford has just completed a year’s UNITAR fellowship, working with UNITAR Geneva to develop funding for projects addressing Gender Based Violence, Conflict Resolution and Peace Building capacities for vulnerable States, and Gender Mainstreaming across CSOs and Public agencies addressing these issues. She also founded the UK Not for Sale movement in 2003 which dedicated its team of volunteers to raise awareness on EU and UN conventions. That work resulted in securing significant new resources for safe housing for recovery for Trafficking survivors in the UK (2004 – 2008) which trebled in capacity over that time.
